Hey, how's it going? I always associated your old name with the Japanese "shogun" term.

I think to say there is no difference is slightly stretching it a bit. While the 430i was not "slow", it certainly didn't respond to inputs as forcefully and "ready to go" as my 535i. And how can...

Most people never drive car to its "full potential", even me. I just had a '17 430i loaner when I dropped off my '14 535i for normal maintenance. The 4 in that car was typical: raucus "rough"...

The first 540i MSport I test drove had this trim. It definitely has a pattern in darker lines. Kind of a diamond or honeycomb-type pattern if I recall.

Just to be precise, CD's are a digital format media! I think you meant to transfer the digital content on the CD's to an alternate digital storage device.

To be fair, there was a plastic film in the screen to protect it prior to purchase. Not sure how shiny it is by itself. I too am not crazy about the shiny black trim around the control area, but...

MSport (or Luxury package), even with Dakota, has SensaTec dash and similar-grained door trim. No different from Nappa leather seat trim.

Alex, I think you will love the 540i. I drove 2 MSports now. They are considerably faster feeling than my '14 535i. I can't compare to E43 (have not driven it), I'm just saying the new G30 is...
